11:02pm
cruz sentinel says goulet was arrested by the santa cruz police for disorderly conduct. an employee of a local coffee shop told the paper goulet was fired saturday from his job as a barrista after he broke into a coworker's house friday night and tried to sexual assault her. as for that gunfight itself, it was in the middle of a quiet neighborhood surrounded by several preschools, and we do have that exclusive video. nbc bay area's terry mcsweeney continues our coverage. terry? >> reporter: that video comes to us from a man by the name of thomas todd. he came home this afternoon as he does every day from work. but today the tragic events unfolded on his doorstep. first there were sirens and then lots of cops and then lots of gunfire. thomas todd had arrived home about an hour before he recorded this video. he had heard something like it earlier, but wasn't certain what it was. it turned out to be the shots that fatally wounded the two officers. and suddenly police swarmed his street. he was still not allowed to
11:03pm
leave his house as of 9:00 tonight, so we spoke to him via facetime. >> the cars in the middle of the street, a coupe of officers behind each car. and then there were i think two to four officers positioned in front of the apartment complex with their guns aimed into the complex. >> and then what happened? [ gunshots ] >> it sounded like the fourth of july. you know, it's about six or seven seconds of i guess about 70 to 80 gunshots, and then everything went quiet. and then a bunch of police officers were just yelling and trying to coordinate positions. >> reporter: not far away, this scene unfolded. the santa cruz unified school district says the branson 40 small and middle schools went into lockdown. students were eventually put on a city bus and taken to a location for parents the pick them up. it's a day they will never forget. it's also a day thomas todd will never forget. >> it was one of the most intense experiences of my life, and all i did was try to stay
11:04pm
calm and let the police handle it. i just couldn't believe something like this would happen on my front porch. >> reporter: we're back out here. you're looking live at a picture of the memorial that has been growing as the night has again on right in front of the santa cruz police department, flowers, candles, and a note saying we love you, santa cruz police. people by themselves, sometimes couples coming up, walking up as if they're in church, very quiet and extremely respectful. as for thomas todd, i spoke to him about 15 minutes ago. and he says about 9:30 tonight he was finally talked to by santa cruz police and allowed to go out. live at the santa cruz police department, terry mcsweeney, nbc bay area news. >> it is a difficult night for many people. thank you. ironically, this deadly shoot-out coincided with a rally against gun violence in santa cruz this afternoon. the demonstration followed a move by the county board of supervisors to approve new stricter regulations on local
11:05pm
gun shops. our coverage of the story continues online on our website, nbcbayarea.com. we posted videos and new details from the briefing. in pleasanton tonight, police are trying to identify a body found at the city dump. an employee found a man's body while sifting through cardboard recyclables at the pleasanton transfer station. the cause of death is not yet known, but right now they're saying it may have been the result of an accident. and some very good news tonight for the friends and family of a east bay couple. the couple was believed to be missing in peru, but it turns out they're just find. garrett hand and jamie neal have been chronicling their south american bicycle adventure on facebook, but on january 25th, their online posts and bank activity suddenly stopped. today neal's sister got a call from the u.s. embassy in peru telling her the couple was recently spotted in remote village headed for ecuador. to the vatican now, where it is friday morning, and pope benedict xvi is preparing to say farewell to a -- excuse me,
11:06pm
where it is wednesday morning. here is a live look. the pontiff will ride in his pope-mobile through the crowds in st. peters square before addrsing the crowd. this will be his last public speech before his resignation becomes official on thursday. $6 million for a grand opening bay bridge party. we'll see if it happens tomorrow. live pictures now of the bridge -- at least the approach to the bridge. the bay bridge toll authority will vote tomorrow on whether to use $5.6 million in toll money to pay for public safety and public access during the planned celebration of the new eastern span. that new span will open on labor day weekend. private funding still needs to be raised to bring a spectacular fireworks show to the bay bridge for its grand opening. >> if they take that action, then i think that labor day weekend we'll at least have a walk across the bridge. it will have a run and a bike ride. the fireworks display and other features are always going to be subject to the ability to raise private funds to do so at this time. >> a spokeswoman for the fundraising company hired to
11:07pm
raise about $5 million says $1.5 million in private funding has been raised to this point. a brewing controversy may land the king of beers in court. a bay area attorney says anheuser-busch is watering down budweiser, and he wants a court order to restore the recipe. jean elle joins us from larkspur this evening. jean, this is an american icon. >> it is, raj. and this marin county attorney believes anheuser-busch is watering down budweiser, which is reducing the alcohol content in each can of beer. while this lawsuit place out in court, people who make beer here in the bay area say it's hard to believe anheuser-busch would mess with success. the bay area loves beer. >> new beers coming up every day. >> brendan has been brewing award winning brew for 24 years. he says beer lovers have a sensitive palette. >> you don't want to mess with your good beers. >> reporter: a marin county
11:08pm
attorney says anheuser-busch is messing with the king of beers, claiming the beverage giant is watering down budweiser to stretch the product which is reducing the alcohol content. >> deliberately adding water to bring the levels down. and they're bringing it down below what is stated on the labels. and that's the basis of our lawsuit. >> reporter: josh boxer filed a class action lawsuit. he says former anheuser-busch employees say budweiser, bud light platinum, king cobra and others are watered down. >> what is on the label should reflect what is in the can. >> reporter: anheuser-busch says the claims are completely false, and the lawsuits are groundless. our beers are in full compliance with labeling laws. back at the brewing company, moylan says the dispute should be settled with a few beers. >> that should be easy to prove. if it's supposed to come up within a certain degree of 5 and you got 0.3 to work with on either side. >> reporter: lab work that may come out in court if this class action lawsuit goes to trial.
11:09pm
now our marin county attorney is hoping for a jury trial. and he is hoping to secure damages for budweiser drinkers. reporting live in larkspur, jean elle, nbc news. the investigative unit exposed a broken restaurant inspection system in the silicon valley. now we uncover popular restaurants across the bay area keeping their health code violations a secret. >> i'm not sure where the copy is right now. >> we'll show you what our hidden camera investigation reveals. also, the warriors get fighting mad against the indiana pacers. the fallout from tonight's brawl. and we'll continue our coverage of our developing story tonight. two santa cruz police officers killed in the line of duty. we're back in a moment.
11:10pm
11:11pm
it's an investigation that keeps getting bigger. first we uncovered a restaurant inspection system that isn't working in the silicon valley. now investigative reporter jenna susko reveals health inspection programs throughout the bay area that have problems with enforcement. she joins us with her undercover investigation. jenna? >> reporter: raj, having a score in the window forces restaurants to clean up, because most customers who see a low score probably won't eat there. in santa clara county, we know what to expect -- nothing. they don't grade restaurants. but what about san mateo and san francisco? both score restaurants and require inspections be visibly posted. so we went undercover and found just because it's the rule doesn't mean it's being followed. at the busy cafe baroni in menlo
11:12pm
park, there are plenty of menu choices. but something is missing. that's because we asked to see their inspection report. san mateo county requires restaurants post it in plain view. >> i'm not sure where the copy is right now. >> reporter: it's mysteriously missing, but would have shown us how the restaurant scored, excellent, good, fair, or poor. less than 3% of restaurants in san mateo county scored poor last year. cafe borrone is one of them. >> that's was the only thing we got docked for was the food handler safety cards. >> reporter: but records show it was cited for major violations that may cause the food borne illness, important information we found restaurants across san mateo county keeping from you. we visited 25 restaurants with hidden cameras, looking for their inspection reports. >> thank you. >> the raw sugar.
11:13pm
>> reporter: oh. that's just a permit. others had blank reports. you can't see anything on it. and at firehouse, employees didn't know what county we were in. >> we are in santa clara county. >> reporter: which may be also why they didn't know the rules. they said we had to show id to see the report, which they didn't have. >> you we have to have identification to see your health inspection? >> reporter: this chuck e. cheese had it up, but look closely. >> it's old. >> reporter: it's from 2009. and you can't see the score. he says the inspector was there recently. >> and we saw her a month and a half ago. >> reporter: a month and a half ago? how did you do? >> excellent. >> reporter: but records show it received a fair for multiple violations. are you supposed to hang it up? >> kind of yes and no. never tell me to, because she is supposed to tell me. >> reporter: out of 25
11:14pm
restaurants, only one had the current report in plain view. so what is the plenty for not posting it? there isn't one. do you think the system is working right now? >> i think that we have several tools for communicating inspection results to the public. >> reporter: we showed antoinette manns of san mateo county's environmental health department some of our video. is what you just saw acceptable to you? >> i think the important thing to remember is that there is always that additional education that we can do with the restaurants. >> reporter: do you think this are things that maybe the county could do to make sure that restaurants are in compliance and to bring them all up to the standard that you have here? >> i think the important thing is to remember that we as public health professionals go into a restaurant to ensure that they are complying with those laws and regulations. >> reporter: we also went to 25
11:15pm
restaurants in san francisco, where inspection reports are required to be up and easy to spot. but we found it's a game of hide-and-seek. >> here it is. >> reporter: like here where it was behind the wine. >> thanks. >> reporter: and above the door at taco in the marina. >> can't even see that. >> reporter: at laurie's diner, we found it behind a plant. >> that was a year ago. >> reporter: and other places, well -- >> probably in the office. >> upstairs, i think. >> we have it like in the kitchen. >> i think there is a lot of misinformation. >> reporter: richard lee is in charge of san francisco's inspection system. why do you think so many restaurants are complying? >> i don't think it's a priority for them. or if they have a bad score, it's not something that they necessarily want the customers to come see. >> reporter: lee says they're docked a point for not having the report up. you see, san francisco has a point system. inspectors score restaurants from 1 to 100 in detailed easy
11:16pm
to access information is posted on the county website. we found last year less than 8% of restaurants scored below 80. balboa cafe in the marina received an 81. but customers walking in wouldn't know that. >> as long as it's available to guests to read, it doesn't have to be in public view. we have to keepette up for a certain amount of days after that evaluation. >> and then you can take it down? >> as long as it's accessible to guests. >> the person who said they can take it down after a few days, that is totally incorrect. >> reporter: that was the manager. >> that's totally incorrect. >> reporter: we did find some restaurants with good scores posting this. it's an easy to read scorecard the county created to simplify inspection information for customers so you don't have to review a two-page report. but -- >> the inspection report is required to be posted, but not the placard. >> reporter: do you think if it was required, it would improve the system? >> i think it would improve public information.
11:17pm
it would be easier for i think the general public to understand. that's probably more useful to them than looking at the inspection report. >> reporter: that's up to the board of providers to decide. until then, it appears restaurants will decide what information they want you to see. we contacted all the restaurants mentioned. most said they will post the inspection report in a visible spot. however, umamiburger in san francisco has not responded to our requests for comment. and cafe borroni said they were told they don't have post the report. san mateo county says that's against policy and are looking into the claim. >> thank you. if you is a a tip for anyone in our investigative unit, give us a call, 88-996-tips or send an e-mail directly to theunit@nbcbayarea.com. let's turn our attention to our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri who was walking the red carpet earlier tonight.
